Is rock dead? This week on Arts & Seizures, Mike Edison and Judy McGuire invite Mishka Shubaly and Zachary Lipez into the studio. Both Mishka and Zachary are musicians (ex-Freshkills) and writers. Zachary writes for Noisey, and Mishka has authored several Kindle Singles, including the new Beat the Devil. Hear the cast talk about their glory days in rock 'n' roll, and why aging leads into a disinterest in rock music. Hear Zachary read one of his annual anniversary love poems! This program has been brought to you by Roberta's.

"A lot of people hold on to this notion that you can't do art for anything for its own sake... If you want to be liked for it, then you are a careerist and you're doing it for the wrong reasons." [5:45]

-- Zachary Lipez on Arts & Seizures

"It's not that rock has died, it's that I have grown up." [19:15]
